TEN MINUTE STORIES. Algernon BLACKWOOD.

TEN MINUTE STORIES.

London: John Murray, 1914. First Edition, First Impression. Hardcover. Octavo, original blue cloth, spine panel titled and ruled in gilt, front panel titled in blind within a small ornate blind-ruled box. 271 pp + 8pp publisher's ads at rear. Issued in a small print run of 2,016 copies; consequently this is a very scarce book. Endpapers browned, spine panel uniformly faded (gilt still bright); a very good, clean, sound copy. No copies located in commerce, a few are in University Libraries but the results are a bit skewed by the fact that most copies, when looked up, tend to be the 1969 "Books For Libraries" facsimile reprint. Very Good. Item #311234
